Looking to customize a setup

I wanted to get the jist of how the difficulty of having the following setup:

3 pumps

1 raspberry pi

1 router

now i want to hook up a touch screen to the pi and be able to see all 3 pumps and be able to input a ML into whatever pump i want to dispense and click dispense for that pump. I wanted to use this in a Lab setting and be able to dispense 3 set liquids at whatever ML i input. i would also like to have an option to click repeat X amount of times with 2 sec of pause time between dispenses under each pump in such an instance where i want to say fill up 20 bottles at 60 ml each. Thank you

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

What you are describing would be very easy to implement if you had a bit of software know-how. You could program your own interface screen with all of those features. It is already very easy to hook up the router, RPI and 3 dispensers to say a tablet via WiFi as your touchscreen input. You can already do some of the things you are describing with our stock software, for example you can set the dispense size of a shot to be 60mL, then in the shots tab, you could simply press one button each time you wanted 60mL of a particular ingredient to be dispensed. If you want to adjust the volume every time, that would be a little more cumbersome, but it's certainly doable.
